Pennington has been shifted to the 60-day disabled list, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Pennington was expected to return around the All-Star break, but considering he has yet to make a rehab appearance, he's likely still a couple weeks away. He now won't be eligible to make his return until early August.
Pennington (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. This is a tough development for Pennington as the veteran infielder had played just three games since returning from a hamstring injury before heading back to the DL. The Angels purchased Brendan Ryan's contract in a corresponding move Wednesday to replace Pennington up the middle. However, the Angels will likely use a combination of Johnny Giavotella and Gregorio Petit as their double play combo the majority of the time in Pennington's absence.
Pennington (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday. A hamstring injury landed Pennington on the DL earlier in May, but he was able to return after the minimum 15 days with his activation Saturday. He won't immediately rejoin the lineup, however, as the Angels will give Gregorio Petit the nod at shortstop against Dallas Keuchel.
Pennington (hamstring) will be activated from the DL on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. He showed the Angels enough in just two rehab games with High-A Inland Empire to convince them he's ready to return to the major leagues. Brendan Ryan was designated for assignment in anticipation of Pennington's return. Pennington is hitting just .217/.294/.370 this season, and with Gregorio Petit faring well of late, the 31-year-old may be relegated to a utility role upon activation.
Pennington (hamstring) will begin his rehab assignment Wednesday at High-A Inland Empire. The utility infielder has been on the shelf since May 13 due to a hamstring issue, but he has progressed quickly since landing on the DL and is nearing a return. He's expected to be activated off the DL on Saturday, so he'll play at least one game at High-A before being returning to the Angels. Gregorio Petit and Johnny Giavotella have both been on tears of late, so Pennington could potentially be relegated to a bench role once he rejoins the big league club.
